203There will be no changes to bin collections in County Durham during the Easter Bank Holiday.

This includes refuse, recycling and garden waste collections (for those who have signed up to the scheme).

Households who have collections on a Friday are therefore reminded to still put their bins out on Good Friday (March 25).

Residents are also advised to put their bins out for collection by 7.00am on their normal collection day.

Those who are unsure of their collection days can find out by entering their house number and postcode into the ‘MyDurham’ section on the Durham County Council website at www.durham.gov.uk
